The Seattle Kids Events Calendar will keep you informed about what's happening in Seattle especially for kids and their families.

Many events on the other calendars are also suitable for children, but it's a lot of information to wade through! Most all of those have activities especially for kids. Here I've gathered some events that are specifically aimed at families with children to help you find some of them more easily.

Macy's Holiday Parade

Parade begins at 9:00am
Tree Lighting at 5:00pm
Downtown and Westlake Center

This is a Seattle holiday tradition and one of the highlights of the season. The Holiday Parade starts on 7th Ave, marches down Pine Street and University Street, then heads north to end at Macy's across from Westlake Center. Decorations are up, and the Holiday Carousel is operating. The official lighting of Westlake Center's Holiday Tree and Macy's Star is at 5pm. The evening ends with a fireworks display. It's one of the most fun days of the year to be downtown. We always went early so we could get a hot latte and find a good place to stand along the parade route. My kids loved it!
